I have always loved making crafts but was never good at doing and finishing it. My mom and sister however has an eye and hand for creating beautiful things. They take one look at something on display then their imagination start working and recreate it without any instructions. I need clear instructions (that is why I love baking) or someone to show me how they do it before my creative imagination kicks in.
The kids and I used to make a lot of crafts together, Daddy C’s office is adorned with things that we created but we stopped. So when Neelu of Pretty Paper Studio invited me to be part of the PPS Design Team 2017-2018, I was excited and scared. Excited to start crafting with the kids again and scared that the outcome would not be mmm well pretty.
Over the next few months we will create easy Mom & Child projects that we hope you will also enjoy making at home.
For our first project we created a Butterfly Canvas Wall Art, super easy and would only require few materials.
November theme was “Anything Goes” which was actually difficult for me because my mind was busy with all the possible projects we can make. I decided to let Chloe take the lead and she suggested we make something with butterflies because she missed seeing them hop from one flower to another.
We searched for butterfly crafts and she fell in love with a wall art. I insisted on making a purple ombre kind then she argued back with “butterflies have colorful wings, Mama.”
Head over to our photo tutorial on the Pretty Paper Studio Blog to see how we made this beautiful art canvas. I really hope that the easy crafts we make will inspire you to do crafting with your kids.
